I was lucky enough to catch the first at the Cap Center and the last at Buckeye Lake. I think that Buckeye is the best of the four, although the crowd response to the breakout at the Cap Center was pretty wild.

hey, me too! and i agree. buckeye was my favorite. the moment they started playing it at cap center was both exhilarating and confusing because the chords were familiar and i new that it was a song that i really liked, but for a split second i couldn't identify what song it actually was. then i figured it out and started cheering and you could hear the wave of enthusiasm spread through the room as everybody realized what it was. good times.

i imagine this tune would have had many very great gd versions if they had played it from 77 on.
